A LITTLE INFO TO EXPLAIN WHAT GOES INTO ONE OF MY FRAMED OR MOUNTED PRINTS
Every mounted print is hand produced by me in my fully kitted workshop. All rectangular prints are available in standard frame sizes enabling cheaper framing. i.e. 14”x11” or 20”x16”.
I only use top quality Colourmount, Antique white acid free mount board. This retains its colour and the bevel cut will not tarnish with age.
The prints are produced with an Epson 3880 Pro printer for outstanding quality, detail and colour reproduction. The printer uses Epson Ultrachrome Pigment inks resulting in images that are moisture resistant and light fast for around 110 years.
Unlike many photographers, I do not farm my printing out to other companies as I like to have complete control over the production process. The only work I trust to another company is the canvas prints. The one I use has a similar level of high quality so I am more than happy for them to produce these for me.
I use the best quality media, mainly Lyson 265gsm Oyster which is extremely white resulting in perfect colour correct prints. The printer and my monitor are also colour calibrated.
The majority of the framed work I produce is finished in solid ash. These are made for me specifically for the mounted prints that I produce. The frames are made by a bespoke framer and are tightly bevelled, grain matched and extremely high quality. All are sealed and strung to a high specification.
All my greetings cards are produced in house. The photographs are high quality Fuji Crystal Archive laboratory wet chemistry prints. These far surpass the colour and detail found on most commercially produced cards using digital processes. The cards are also fade resistant for up to 60 years. I use 300gsm card stock for a nice quality feel and seal them in self seal bags and add a label to the seal. All cards are individually signed by me.
I have numerous books published in hardback by Halsgrove. They are available from this site or from good bookshops throughout the South West. Details of my books can be found in the 'Galleries' section.
